Patria to Deliver Acoustic Minesweeping Systems to Royal Norwegian Army
Patria has been awarded a contract for the delivery of Patria Sonac ACS Acoustic Minesweeping Systems to the Royal Norwegian Navy by the Norwegian Defence Material Agency (NDMA). This contract strengthens Patria’s strategic efforts to become one of the leading companies providing underwater and maritime intelligence and surveillance solutions, especially in the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and maritime mine counter measures (MMCM) domains. The new state-of-the-art minesweeping product further strengthens Patria’s naval product portfolio and improves the company’s competitiveness and position in the global MMCM market.
Patria Sonac ACS utilises Patria’s patented sound source technology offering unprecedented acoustic performance over a wide frequency spectrum fully supporting mine setting, target simulation and mine jamming modes of operation. The innovative design allows accurate reproduction of true pre-recorded or synthesised submerged or surface target signatures making it highly efficient against modern intelligent influence sea mines. Thanks to its compact size, Patria Sonac ACS is especially well suited for future lightweight autonomous multi-influence minesweeping systems.
“We are very proud to provide the Royal Norwegian Navy with world-class capability as the critical part of their future naval minesweeping toolbox. The development of Patria Sonac ACS is based on Patria’s long-term experience and know-how in the design and development of acoustic sweeping gear and multi-influence sea mines”, says Jonas Geust, president of Patria’s systems business unit.
